English term or phrase:lean muscle tissue
Once again I ask about this term. Someone suggested to me "sucha tkanka miesniowa" but it does not sound good to me. It needs to be juxtaposed with "fat tissue". What do you think of "sucha tkanka miesniowa?"
Explanation: Nie jestem na 100% pewna, czy to to samo, ale może?
What is lean muscle tissue?
When someone refers to lean muscle tissue, they mean everything in the body that is not fat - bones, water, muscles, skin etc. The goal in fitness, is to increase the amount of lean muscle tissue, and decrease the amount of fat tissue. http://www.turningpointuk.com/healthquest/leantis.htm
Marc Hellerstein and colleagues at San Francisco General Hospital gave 39 patients one of two nutritional supplements commercially available (Advera and Ensure) and found that, while the patients did increase their intake of protein, vitamins, and other nutritional substances, they did not increase their "fat-free mass," or lean muscle tissue. http://www.aegis.com/news/wb/1998/WB980701.html
